A mother from Beaverton, Oregon had the scare of a lifetime after a thief stole her car with her child in the vehicle. Ironically, there is evidence the thief is more responsible than the mother.
Police responded to Basics Meat Market around 9 a.m. Saturday in Beaverton, Oregon. Crystal Leary told them she had gone into the store to quickly grab a couple of items and left her 4-year-old son in the car with the engine running.
While she was inside, a man got into the car and drove off with the boy inside.
You would be surprised how often this happens, and while it’s easy to blame the car thief, the only person responsible for this calamity is the mother. But wait, it gets better.
Leary says the suspect then drove back to the store and yelled at her, threatening to call the police because she left her son in the car. He ordered her to get the boy out of the car then drove off again. (H/T – Smite)
Your honor, the defense rests. Look, the man should obviously be charged with the auto theft, but I still stand by my statement that this man is infinitely more responsible than the child’s mother.
